I do not understand their thinking!!! Why ban certain types, "assault weapons" of guns??? Do they REALLY think that a criminal is going to go into a gun store and purchase a weapon????? These guns will find there way on to the streets regardless. Oh...so they can go through a vest huh??? HEY people........just because an HK assault weapon shooting .308's may go through.......so will my Browing .308. SO STUPID If someone wants to shoot an officer.......any high powered rifle will do......it's the bullet, not the gun it is coming from....... I can see not selling full auto weapons, that's it and that's all. I'm just SICK of these people going after and taking our right piece by piece, little by little. They are going to start pss-ing off the wrong groups......... And if gets me....the police are so happy. Yeah, sure they can buy whatever.......automatic or anything.......weapon, the ban doesn't effect them....... What about the everyday gun enthusiast, collector or hunter. They say the ban also doesn't apply to target shooters, among a few others. Who is considered a target shooter???????? I shoot targets, do I count????
